Nominate Your NEO Hero With the Red Cross Featured

Written by

The deadline to nominate your local hero for the annual Acts of Courage Awards hosted by the American Red Cross of Northeast Ohio is rapidly approaching!

What constitutes a hero? Well, an ordinary person who has done, or continues to do, extraordinary things.

Take for example Eric Peterson of Atwater who was driving to work on the morning of March 27, 2018, just like any other day... until it wasn't. He noticed smoke coming from a house in his neighborhood, just a few houses from his. When Peterson didn't see anyone standing outside, he knew there had to be people inside and that they probably needed help. 

That's when he jumped into action and saved the lives of a family he'd never met prior to that day. 

Hear the interview with Eric Peterson, 2019 recipient of the Acts of Courage Award.
